Ghost patients still haunt Medicare; P300M lost yearly
Posted: 11:48 PM (Manila Time) | Feb. 17, 2002

(First of three parts)
THE COUNTRY’S National Health Insurance Program continues to lose as much as P300 million a year to fraudulent claims, including those involving so-called ghost patients.
And according to the state-run Philippine Health Insurance Corp., which administers the program, at least 11 hospitals are facing penalties for claiming Medicare benefits for non-admitted or non-existing patients.
“The number of fraudulent cases has grown to alarming proportions,” said Dr. Francisco Duque III, president and CEO of PhilHealth. “We have to stop the hemorrhaging of PhilHealth. Otherwise, the corporation will incur more losses. We want to put a stop to fraudulent practices to protect PhilHealth members.”
PhilHealth assumed responsibility for managing the Medicare program in October 1997 for the Government Service Insurance System and in April 1998, for the Social Security System.
According to a PhilHealth report released in the year 2001, at least 4 percent of payments for Medicare claims in 2000 were fraudulent or questionable. Total claims amounted to P6.8 billion, so this “translates to at least P272 million in losses for the corporation,” the report read.

Medicare pinagmumultuhan pa rin ng “ghost patients”: P300M nawawala taun-taon

Huwad na mga Pahayag
(Una sa tatlong bahagi)
Patuloy na nawawalan ang National Health Insurance Program ng bansa ng halagang umaabot sa P300 milyon taun-taon dulot ng huwad na mga claim, kabilang na ang mga kinasasangkutan ng tinaguriang “ghost patient.”
At ayon sa Philippine Health Insurance Corp., ang pampamahalaang pangasiwaan ng naturang programa, di kukulangin sa 11 ospital ang nahaharap sa mga parusa bunga ng pag-angkin ng mga benepisyo mula sa Medicare para sa mga pasyenteng hindi naman ginamot, o di kaya’y kathang-isip lamang.
“Lubhang dumami na ang bilang ng huwad na mga kaso,” ani Dr. Francisco Duque III, pangulo at punong-abala ng PhilHealth. “Kailangan naming itigil ang pagdurugo ng PhilHealth. Kung hindi’y aani ng higit pang pagkalugi ang korporasyon. Nais naming itigil ang huwad na mga gawaing ito upang ipagtanggol ang mga miyembro ng PhilHealth.”
Tinanggap ng Philhealth ang pananagutan na pamahalaan ang programang Medicare nuong Oktubre, 1997, para sa Government Service Insurance System, at nuong Abril 1998, para sa Social Security System.
Ayon sa isang ulat ng PhilHealth nuong 2001, di bababa sa 4 na porsyento ng mga kabayaran para sa Medicare claims nuong 2000 ay huwad o nakapag-aalinlangan. Umabot sa P6.8 bilyon ang kabuuang claims, kaya’t “nangangahulugan ito na nawalan ang korporasyon ng di kukulangin sa P272 milyon,” ayon sa naturang ulat.

there is a man who is tired of appearing strong when he feels vulnerable.
For every woman who is tired of acting dumb,
there is a man who is burdened with the constant expectation of knowing everything.
For every woman who is tired of being called an emotional female,
there is a man who is denied the full right to weep and be gentle.
For every woman who feels tied down by her children,
there is a man who is denied the full pleasure of shared parenthood.
For every woman who is denied meaningful employment and equal pay,
there is a man who must bear full financial responsibility for another human being.
For every woman who was not taught the intricacies of an automobile,
there is a man who was not taught the satisfaction of cooking.
For every woman who takes a step toward her own liberation,
there is a man who finds that the way to freedom has been made a little easier.
Translation - Tagalog Sa bawat babaeng pagod na sa kagaganap na mahina habang batid niyang siya’y malakas,
may lalaking pagod na sa pagmumukhang siya’y malakas habang nakadarama siya ng panghihina.
Sa bawat babaeng pagod na sa kagaganap na tanga,
may lalaking pasan ang ekspektasyon na lagi niyang alam ang lahat.
Sa bawat babaeng pagod na sa pagkakatawag na babaeng emosyonal,
may lalaking pinagkakaitan ng lubos na karapatang lumuha at maging maamo.
Sa bawat babaeng dama’y nakatali siya sa kanyang mga anak,
may lalaking pinagkakaitan ng lubos na kasiyahan ng magkatuwang na pagmamagulang.
Sa bawat babaeng pinagkakaitang ng makabuluhang hanapbuhay at pantay na sahod,
may lalaking pumapasan ng buong pananagutan para sa ibang tao.
Sa bawat babaeng hindi tinuruan ng kasalimuotan ng kotse,
may lalaking hindi tinuruan ng kasiyahan ng pagluluto.
Sa bawat babaeng humahakbang patungo sa kanyang kalayaan,
may lalaking nakatutuklas na ang landas patungong kalayaan ay pinagaan.

Prior to these, translation has often been part and parcel of working with grassroots organizations and their partner agencies, which I have been doing for the past 25 years last August. Aside from project proposals, reports, contracts/terms of reference/memoranda of agreement and other communication between them (1988-current), major outputs include: the English version of Katipunan ng Kababaihan's findings on working women's reproductive rights (1995), Kongreso ng Pagkakaisa ng Maralitang Lungsod's 1995 Alternative Urban Development Agenda, Pagkakaisa ng Mamamayan at Navotas / People's Center for Community Development's 1995 community diagnosis, summing-up of their health program, summative evaluation of their socio-economic program, and summing-up of their organizational development. St. Joseph Social Services' 1995 gender thematic review and the Center for Urban Resource, Exchange and Development's 1993-95 summative evaluation of socio-economic work as conducted by non-government organizations based in Metro Manila are English documents based on Tagalog field responses.
CURED's Tagalog Manual on Community Planning was translated from English reference materials (1993), as are my own training modules on training needs analysis design, development and conduct as well as gender sensitivity (including 2 poems), Lotus 123 and Word Perfect 5.1 for DOS (1994); feasibility study preparation and crisis counselling for women, aside from cooperativism (1995); gender-sensitive courses on facilitation, communication, counseling, and some topics on gender-sensitive organization development (1996); also gender-sensitive courses on situational leadership, decision-making, problem-solving, conflict management, situational research, and creative writing (1997). Also translated Tagalog material into English for the course material on organizing (1994).
That is how I was able to practice the one-semester elective on translation I had in high school, one semester each of Creative Writing in Tagalog and in English, aside from the usual communication arts courses in both languages from elementary thru intermediate school, plus some college-level English and Filipino courses.
